Managing a MongoDB deployment? Take a load off and live migrate to MongoDB Atlas, the official automated service, with little to no downtime.

Android's move from the Dalvik to ART runtime has been discussed for a while now. Those who are eager to dig in and start working with ART may be interested in this recent post from Dominik Helleberg on making the switch to and developing on ART. Helleberg's post is practical and productive, covering such topics as:

  • Heap dumps
  • Garbage collection
  • Stability

And more. Also, Helleberg's post is part three of a series, continuing off of Matthias Schaff's first two parts: an overview of ART and the way it works, and a look at OAT file analysis and garbage collection. If you're interested in digging into Android's ART runtime on a deeper and more technical level, check out Helleberg's full post and part one and two from Schaff.

MongoDB Atlas is the easiest way to run the fastest-growing database for modern applications — no installation, setup, or configuration required. Easily live migrate an existing workload or start with 512MB of storage for free.
